Burn Ban In Affect At Oregon State Parks/Beaches


Oregon State Parks has issued a fire ban at several parks and all beaches across the state. This means no wood fires, charcoal, charcoal briquettes, pellet-fueled grills, candles, tiki torches and other devices that emit flames or embers and cannot be turned off with a valve. Portable cooking stoves, propane fire rings, barbecues, and lanterns using liquefied or bottle fuels are allowed. Devices using liquefied or bottle fuels are banned in the backcountry unless used for cooking.


The city of Newport and rural fire protection district has also issued a burn ban in place through Wednesday.

The ban also includes all beaches in Lincoln County, which includes Devil's Lake in Lincoln City and nearby beaches to the north and south, Beverly Beach and surrounding beaches north of Newport and South Beach and surrounding beaches south of Newport. With these high temperatures and potential wildfire danger if you are camping there are things to consider regarding your camping stay. Before you arrive—or during your stay—a campground may be affected by a wildfire. The park could be subject to Level 1, 2, or 3 notification without warning.


Incoming reservation customers will receive an email if a park is under a Level 1 status or if it is closed because of Level 2 or Level 3 status. The status will also be included in the fire restrictions list above when needed. What does this mean and what should you consider for your trip? If a park reaches Level 1, that means a fire is in the area, and you should be ready to evacuate if notified. Air quality may be affected. Visit www.oregonsmoke.org and the 2023 Wildfire Situation Board for the latest conditions. If you choose to cancel your reservation when a park is at Level 1, standard charges and policies apply.


Level 2 If a park falls within the Level 2 boundaries, it will be evacuated. Please follow the direction of park staff or law enforcement to safely leave the campground. Your reservations will be canceled and all fees will be refunded. Oregon State Parks will contact incoming campers with updates on their reservations.


Level 3 If a park falls within the Level 3 boundaries, it is under evacuation or has already evacuated. Please follow the direction of park staff or law enforcement to safely leave the campground. Your reservations will be canceled and all fees will be refunded. Oregon State Parks will contact incoming campers with updates on their reservations.
